Dickensian London App
Wrote Randy Kennedy in a December 9 New York Times story, "A tourism app that evokes slums, starveling waifs, child labor, pickpockets, brutal jails and gallows might not be everyone's idea of a good way to promote their city’s past."
"But for Charles Dickens fanatics — who began Friday to flock to the Museum of London's exhibition celebrating the 200th anniversary of his birth on Feb. 7, 1812 — it will undoubtedly be Dickensian in the best sense of the word."
"It relies mostly on Dickens’s 1836 series of short pieces, 'Sketches of Boz,' about life in London, with illustrated extracts from more famous works like 'Bleak House' and 'Oliver Twist,' to lead users through a digitized recreation of the city Dickens called his 'magic lantern.'"
Free, the way we like it.
PB&J Candy Bar
"A light cookie base supports a layer of Peanut Butter & Co.'s 'Smooth Operator' peanut butter and a healthy dose of raspberry jam, dipped in milk chocolate."
"Pulp Fiction" — In Chronological Order
"No telling how long this recut version of Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' that plays the film's scenes in chronological order will stay up before the Powers That Hate Fun pull it down, so take 2-1/2 hours out of your day and watch it now."
There goes Monday.
